3 World Premieres in San Diego Old Globe’s 2015-16 Season

Constellations review Jake Gyllenhaal Broadway Ruth

San Diego’s Old Globe theater has announced its upcoming season, which will includes three world premieres, two plays by Shakespeare and the theater’s staple production of Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”

The respected SoCal institution will debut two musicals and a play, beginning with the dance-heavy “In Your Arms,” from Christopher Gattelli (“Newsies”) and composer Stephen Flaherty, in September. New musical “Rain” will bow in March, based on a short story by W. Somerset Maugham.

Auds will get a funny look at tennis and romance in Anna Ziegler’s “The Last Match,” a world premiere play bowing in February.

Two plays will make their West Coast premieres at the Globe: Lawrence Wright’s “Camp David” and David Ives’ “The Metromaniacs.” Other plays to hit San Diego include Nick Payne’s “Constellations” (pictured), fresh off a much-discussed Broadway run, and “Tokyo Fish Story,” Kimber Lee’s sushi saga.

“Full Gallop,” “The Devil Wears Prada”-esque play starring Tony Award winner Mercedes Ruehl, returns to the Globe in September.

Fans of the Bard will delight in productions of two of his comedies in November, “Much Ado About Nothing” and “As You Like It.”

Seuss devotees might feel their hearts grow three sizes around Christmas when the Globe’s production of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” returns for an 18th year.

“These 11 productions range across a wide variety of theatrical styles to tell captivating and exciting stories: stories that are moving, amusing and entertaining; stories that are about the simplest truths and the biggest themes,” said artistic director Barry Edelstein in a statement. “The Globe is a treasure of our region, and we are honored to share it.”
